Default I Started The Front Suspension/Disc Brake Upgrade. A Few Pics
Well,, after working my Azz off at work and being sick for over a week...I finally started the Suspension/Disc Brake Upgrade. Once again, working by myself weak as a little boy I beat the shite out of those ball joints which I am willing to bet are original...I got all but one. For those that don't know, this is on my 66 Chevy truck project which I converted the manual steering to power and now changing almost all the front suspension parts with a bit of a drop (front & rear) and Disc brake upgrade (front & rear). I still need to get the last ball joint off and remove the A arms to replace the bushings/media blast...as you can see the underside is covered in years of dirt. Here are a few pics...I like the last one of the new tie rod ends with the turn buckles...Purdy!!
more to come.

Slow but sure it'll come together. What I like about a project is as things get done and as you say start lookin Purdy it gives you incentive for the next step! My last so called Project Car I logged 650 Man Hours of restoration. Good Luck with the project!

Phil, coming along.... Are you leaving all parts rusted or are you having them refinished?
